This week’s question is:

It is up to you to do a Kickstarter campaign for your favorite book!!! Who are you casting for the main characters?

I have no idea why but, whenever someone asks me my favorite book I always come back to Karen Witemeyer’s book To Win Her Heart. There is just something about it that I love AND it helped me discover a wonderful new author which I am grateful for. My favorite celebrity couple of all time is Jane Seymour and Joe Lando as Michaela and Sully in Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman. I LOVED that show with a passion and I think they both are an awesome actress/actor. I think they would be perfect for the main characters in To Win Her Heart.


Jane Seymour


Joe Lando

Book Shelf Tour! Take us on a tour of your book shelf.

Ok, Ok… Here’s where I defer. It’s very hard to tour my book shelves because… well… I don’t actually HAVE book shelves. My books are strung from here to there all willy nilly and I’m afraid you wouldn’t want to see that. No, really… it’s SCAREY! LOL But I’d love to see your book shelves if you feel like sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚

This week’s question is:

If you could only have ONE โ€“ one book โ€“ for the rest of your life. Donโ€™t cheatโ€ฆwhat would it be?

To Win Her Heart by Karen Witemeyer


I know, I know… It should have been some spectacular classic. I am mainly a Christian Fiction reader and everytime someone asks what my favorite book is I never even hesitate. This book really stole my heart and opened me up to a fabulous new author to boot! Which book would you choose? ๐Ÿ™‚
